A DRIVER’S speeding conviction was quashed after a court heard he had been rushing to see the birth of his baby.

Craig Isaacs was caught doing 45mph on a 30mph stretch of Huddersfield Road, Halifax, but the case was dropped when the 35-year-old, of Huddersifield, presented his baby’s birth certificate - proving the child was born 20 minutes after the offence.
